There’s always so much chatter about kids being picky, but lots of kids love cooking. And even many, um, selective eaters enjoy a good kitchen project too, you know, if it’s making cupcakes and not kale. Understandable. Whether you have a foodie kid or just a little one who loves being in the kitchen with you, these gifts for kids in the kitchen make great holiday gifts and stocking stuffers.

And who knows, maybe some of these will inspire picky eaters to be more adventurous—or at least to help you with dinner duty. Or, fine, inspire them to bake another batch cookies. We won’t complain.
